information about the kinds of injuries and what sort of energies and what are the source of the injuries? it kind of reminded me in a meeting yesterday. i was around in the 1970's. the only guy who can remember this -- i hope i am not insulting him -- is ray lahood. he remembers the auto industry. he remembers the whole question of traffic safety and highway safety. there was a big fight when i first got in the senate that began in the late 1960 fell through early 1970's. the automobile industry did not want to allow the department of transportation to acquire statistics on the type of accidents that occur. they were not able to literally acquire the information. because the concern was it would lead to calls for some rational regulations for the guardrails for automobiles. i remember when we finally broke through and the department of transportation started keeping misinformation, they found out -- if my memory is correct -- the vast majority of drivers -- the steering wheel damage to their solar plexus, penetrated their upper body cavity, damaged their heart. the reason the industry di

the time. >> let's talk about this. the president wants a legacy of environment, gun laws, energy, is he going to get this or trapped in this debate over budgets and taxes and spending cuts? >> the budget, tax and spending, not so much on the tax but when history looks at what happened in the deal on the fiscal cliff, a lot of positives there. the 99% of the people get permanent tax cuts. that is a big deal if you're president of the united states. or even in congress. 1% 0 going to pay more. i would say certainly that's the right policy. so maybe it's not so bad. the problem is that the process was like this permanent divorce court. and you just could not unravel in any meaningful way what's going on, what's going to happen and so you have the brigade of biden and mitch commonly coming in -- mitch mcconnell coming in at the last minute. >> zpwhr and is it in everyone's interests to get something done, the republicans need a legacy to reshape their image or just committed to try to block the president, gloria, at all costs? >> i think they're going to be blocking. and look, the tax issue

the president keeps doubling down. we got another $12 billion to be spent on wind energy alone this year. it is a failure. nothing has happened with wind energy. we haven't created that many jobs. only 48,000 jobs in the wind industry but we're subsidizing it to the tune of $12 billion this year. >>steve: that is something you have railed on your program and this channel as well that the government is trying to pick winners and losers. >> the government should not be doing that. this is the end point of the government trying to pick winners in green energy. it's an ideological program. the left says we've got to have green energy, so we subsidize it. we try to pick winners and losers. >>brian: it will be great when it works. we have skilled people, scientists that have been working on this technology, trying to make it come true. in comes the chinese money as they buy the company and they also get the scientists. so they're going to be working on this leading-edge technology that could be converted to military tepbl for -- military technology for another country. >> we have lost our mone

the wind energy tax credit. and even got the rates back to where he wanted to get the rates. now, we're in a divided government. you're not going to get every single thing that you want, but the president got some really big things, made some real progress. and if you look at the base line that everybody compares, you know, where the budget is to everything else, actually, this does cut the deficit by $737 billion. so i think the president made big progress here and we're going to have to see going forward how we're going to be able to deal with the looming crisis that we face in the next couple of months. >> bill burton has just shown why he was the deputy press secretary. and i mean that, bill, as a compliment. but, in all seriousness, he's giving the spin on that. so what do you say? >> well, i think that when you look at president obama's priorities, it's important to keep in mind that deficit reduction isn't necessarily his biggest priority right now, for the simple reason that there's a lot of anxiety among folks in the white house that if you have too fast of fiscal contractio

that msnbc is partially owned by ge. steve elmendorf was paid $350,000 from the wind energy association. but possibly the biggest player here was capital tax partners whose website offers clients and intimate knowledge of the tax writing process. it includes a team full of tax experts and advisors that work both on capitol hill and on the white house. capital one and goldman sachs were among the big banks that paid the firm, $2.2 million to get the financing break. verizon and time warner cable paid another $700,000 to keep the appreciation tax low. the motion picture association paid nearly $500,000 to secure tax breaks for movie producers. part of a measure that passed through the finance committee. back in august it went no where for months until it was tackeden to the fiscal cliff bill at the last minute. michael isikoff looking at how that happened. here he is now. mr. isikoff, so, i look at all your reporting on this and i think this is why tax reform can't ever get done. in a way that will make the country, in this day in age, when we expect transparency isn't going to happen. >>
